CALGARY — WestJet has announced another domestic destination that will be served by its newest aircraft – the 787 Dreamliner.
The award-winning aircraft is now operating five-times weekly between Vancouver and Toronto. Vancouver joins Calgary and Toronto as the carrier’s latest Canadian destination served by the Dreamliner.
“The Dreamliner offers our guests the highest safety and health standards as well as an extremely comfortable inflight experience. We are proud our signature aircraft is now flying nonstop service between two of Canada’s major cities and two of our hub airports,” said John Weatherill, WestJet Vice-President Network Planning and Revenue.
WestJet is also operating Boeing 737 aircraft on three other nonstop daily flights between Vancouver and Toronto for a total of four daily flights (except Saturdays). On Nov. 5, the WestJet Dreamliner will increase operations between Vancouver and Toronto to daily service.
The WestJet Dreamliner features 320 seats in three cabins – Business, Premium and Economy. In Business, guests are treated to maximum privacy in a separate cabin with individual lie-flat pods, while the upscale Premium cabin also includes a separate cabin. WestJet’s improved Economy cabin features on-demand inflight entertainment with a select number of extra legroom seats available for purchase.
